I love how exquisite the embroidery detailing of the neckpiece is. When worn inside the jacket it gives an impression that it is a whole embroidered top (which i could do)but it was enough to be just a bib since I'm wearing a jacket over it. There is a baroque quality in the bib and this theme extends to the piping of the pocket details of the leather jacket and the curve of the structured curved shoulder. What is even more fun: these swirly patterns resemble chocolate icing on the cake. Yum.

The black braided belt was an added styling detail to minimize the white space of the shirt's collar.

I wore skinnies to highlight the top and its details.

The boots finished the outfit making the look more biker/punk.

I usually consider a longer jacket to my top, but your leather jacket broke all the rules and looked good. Good job.

The embroidery bib have such a beautiful and almost subtle affect creating more interest. Fantastic thinking on adding the belt, love the braided detail. The Jacket however really completes the Baroque feel!!!!! :):):):):):):)

This one's my FAVORITE look andre! I love how you were able to combine the bib with your leather jacket. And the bib looks really great! The style is very distinct and exceptional! This look resembles the Classical Baroque style of the French and English court. Fashionable men during that time also wore their hair longer.
